Applications are now open for Oriel College’s annual Year 12 Medicine Outreach Day. This will be held on Saturday 10th February 2018, with applications closing on 26th January. It’s a fantastic experience covering the application process for medical schools in the UK, and the teaching methods used by undergraduate medicine tutors. Students will be able to meet current medical students at Oriel, as well as practising medical professionals.
The event is designed for students in Year 12 who are planning on applying for Medicine and/or Biomedical Science degree courses. Students should be studying at least Chemistry A-Level and be predicted an A or A*.
This event is open to state school students from anywhere in the UK, with priority given to non-selective schools. In the event of oversubscription, other factors will need to be used (school/area rates of progression to HE, school’s history of progression to Oxbridge/RG) to offer places to attendees. A total of 80 places are available.
Students do not necessarily need to be considering applying for a medical degree at Oxford: the material covered will apply to all other medical school applications.
As with all Oriel events, the college provides activities and meals free of charge. Schools are able to nominate up to four candidates (and are welcome to nominate fewer). I will be in touch in January with a form for each nominated student to complete. Students must be nominated by a teacher: we cannot accept applications from individual students.
